Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections, a department in Library and Information Technology Services (LITS), seeks proposals for scholars to work for a period of up to nine months utilizing Archives and Special Collections extensive resources on women’s history. The scholar will be accorded access to LITS resources including library collections, a Mount Holyoke guest computing account, office space, computer and printer and research assistance. In return, the scholar will present a talk on the work in progress at a public event toward the end of the residency.
The Scholar-in-Residence Program is designed to:

- Encourage scholars to conduct original scholarship that draws on the resources in Archives and Special Collections and LITS.
- Facilitate the dissemination of the researchers' findings through lectures, publications, and the ongoing LITS Cultural Programming series.
- Foster productive working relationships between humanities scholars and the Mount Holyoke College Library and Information Technology Services.
The residency does not provide housing nor a stipend or salary of any kind. Once awarded, the residency will expire nine months from the date of award.
Applications consisting of a project description and current curriculum vitae, and any questions, should be sent electronically to Jennifer Gunter King (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
